Ospreys have announced that wing Keelan Giles has signed a new two-year contract with the Welsh province.

A product of Ospreys Player Pathway Programme and Academy, Giles started playing for Swansea RFC in 2015 before making his Ospreys debut a year later.

Since then, he has gone on to make 58 appearances for the club scoring 20 tries despite missing most of the last two seasons to injuries.

He also had represented Wales Under 20 squad in the past and was named in the Wales senior squad in 2016 and 2017.

“I grew up in the region, have supported the club since I was a youngster and I enjoy being here and feel there is a real future here.

“You can really feel us growing as a team and you will really see that come to fruition over the next few years.

“Personally, it is just great to be back playing and training, trying to improve as a player and contribute to the team.

“The more I play, the more confidence I get. I have thoroughly enjoyed just getting back out there and doing what I do.

“The competition for places on the wing is unreal here and it really drives you on in training and in games.

“We all know we have to take every opportunity we get with both hands.”

Ospreys are at the 11th place in the United Rugby Championship table with seven wins from 14 games.
